Information About Evaluations
We are conducting psychosexual evaluations via telehealth, including our interview(s) with the client and the majority of the testing that we have clients complete during the course of their evaluation. There may be times when a testing measure we need to complete does not have a virtual administration option. In that case, we are scheduling testing with clients in office.
We require that clients wear masks to their testing appointment. Failure to wear a mask will result in cancellation of the appointment. Skipped Parts, LLC staff will wear masks during the appointments.
Since our inception in 2014, we have provided sex offense specific therapy and/or psychosexual evaluations in over thirty-one Minnesota counties.
Cost of Evaluations
We do not bill insurance for psychosexual evaluations. For clients who are private pay, we require a minimum initial payment of $1,000 at the time of your first appointment. We require that the balance be paid prior to the release of the final evaluation. If a third party is paying for your evaluation (such as a public defender's office or other county department), we will need confirmation of this from that party prior to beginning the evaluation process.
If testimony is requested, we ask this be requested at the time of referral (for assessment clients) so that we can plan ahead for court dates in our schedule. The cost of testimony is separate from the cost of evaluations.
Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abuse
Skipped Parts, LLC has developed a reputation of providing research-guided evaluations with clear recommendations for courts and probation to consider when making decisions. When we conduct these assessments, we uphold the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) 2014 guidelines for psychosexual assessments by reviewing the client’s risk for recidivism, identifying strengths and discussing protective factors relative to the client, providing recommended types and intensity of interventions, identifying criminogenic needs/dynamic risk factors to be targeted through interventions, and commenting on responsivity factors that may impact the client’s response to interventions.
